She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe...
By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.
He's cynical and doesn't take crap from anyone...
Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade's mother stole. He's skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn't felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can't explain.
Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things...
Neither of Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings.
This book was more than enjoyable. I was hooked line and sinker from the first page. The story was intriguing, combine mystery with a bit of history, and I was a goner. It was a ton of fun trying to guess who the bad guys were (at least I love that part in a book :P )
Vince Knight is man on a mission to solve who stole a missing artifact. From the clues he has, that brings him to Jade Fitzgerald.
The characters had quite an attraction to each other from the start. They knew each other in high school and their families are friends. Sir Knight definitely lives up to his name. I found myself routing for him during this story! I know the line, “Kick their ass!”, jumped in my head a few times. :) Jade, quite resourceful, never left her man. She stood in the middle of the action and refused to become a wall flower. She could kick butt and keep up. My kind of woman.
Vince and Jade never have a dull moment. Family secrets come to light, bad men chasing them, murders popping up all over town, blazing passion and so much more! This book is quite appealing to anyone who likes a mystery, sizzling romance, a hero that doesn't quit and a heroine who stands by her man. I cant wait to read more!
Question for Edna: Please tell me your coming out with more?! Id love to read Faith's and Eddie's stories. :)
